Clarity from a (Methodist) Bishop

Clarity from a (Methodist) Bishop

After the last item about a faithful member of the Methodist community, it seems appropriate to follow up with a story about a faithful Methodist bishop – Bruce R. Ough, resident Bishop of the Ohio West Area of The United Methodist Church, who sent a word of welcome by letter to the Sing a New Song conference in Huron, Ohio.

Sing a New Song, organized by progressive Methodist organizations, was held in order “to plan ways to welcome lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people into the church.”

Bishop Ough’s letter, read by Rev. David Meredith, didn’t equivocate; rather, as a quick Google search of his name points out, it was in keeping with the tenor of his ministry with regard to radical inclusion.

Hit play.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
